Not to worry: These are not pathologic numbers and the cct is somewhat protective. I am guessing you had an evaluation with this detail because there is glaucoma in your family. It is reasonable every two years or so to have your iop checked because 21 is the upper limits of normal, but please don't lose any sleep over this.
